The Other Guys

Crime . Comedy . Action

NYPD detectives Christopher Danson (Johnson) and P.K. Highsmith (Jackson) are the baddest and most beloved cops in New York City. They don't get tattoos, other men get tattoos of them. Two desks over and one back, sit detectives Allen Gamble (Ferrell) and Terry Hoitz (Wahlberg). You've seen them in the background of photos of Danson and Highsmith, out of focus and eyes closed. They're not heroes, they're "the other guys." But every cop has his or her day and soon Gamble and Hoitz stumble into a seemingly innocuous case no other detective wants to touch that could turn into NYC's biggest crime. It's the opportunity of their lives, but do these guys have the right stuff?

More Info:
  • Owen Gleiberman

    It's a comedy of manhood for the age of emasculation.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    The funniest movie of the year.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    The Other Guys finds McKay back to trying something wildly ambitious with his comedy, and largely succeeding.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    This summer's funniest movie.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Great casting takes The Other Guys most of the way: Ferrell draws a wealth of good material from his character's oddball ineffectuality, and he partners perfectly with Wahlberg, who's always best at his most incredulous.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    Nimbly blending comedy and action -- with an affectionate slo-mo nod to John Woo -- McKay does his best work to date here.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The Other Guys isn't easy to peg. It's not a comedy that loosens you up and mellows you out; it works by needling you progressively into a state of anxiety.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Ferrell is effortlessly uproarious. And watching hardass Wahlberg, in his first starring shot at farce, shake his sillies out is not to be missed.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    So hilarious that even longtime Ferrell haters (me) can't resist it.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    At its core, a perceptive satire of the interpersonal boiling points in buddy-cop pictures.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The film's first 15 minutes are by far the most fun (and could be the best quarter-hour of any movie released this year), with Samuel L. Jackson and The Rock letting it all hang out.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Randy Cordova

    A surprising, laugh-out-loud take on the old buddy-cop genre. It's sneaky and smartly funny, offering an almost perfect balance of action and comedy. That's the good news. Then there's the matter of the movie's disheartening final 25 minutes.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    It's a mixed bag with plenty of gags that fall flat, not a comic masterpiece. But it's got tremendous zing, a sense of mischief and a big heart, more than enough to mark it as a delicious shot of caffeinated ice cream, and the summer season's funniest comedy. Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Here the filmmakers are in fine fettle, which goes a long way to make much of the low-brow silliness and slapstick infectious.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Like some silly summer song that can't be shaken from the mind, this is a catchy enterprise, no better than it tries to be and no less funny.

    Time Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    It's loud, raunchy, semicoherent and stuffed to the bursting point with heavy weaponry and car chases, most of which involve a red, cocaine-covered Prius that's been pressed into service as a police car. But Adam McKay's comedy of chaos, which he wrote with Chris Henchy, can also be very funny.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Joshua Katzman

    Michael Keaton is a stitch as an emasculated police captain moonlighting as a retail store manager.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    For a good hour, this is the picture Kevin Smith was trying to make with "Cop Out."

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Like a padded "Saturday Night Live" sketch. What would have been very funny for 15 minutes, and pretty funny for 45, doesn't maintain the standard over the course of a feature-length film.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    For the most part, The Other Guys is seriously silly stuff, in the best sense.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It's amusingly off-the-wall, but entirely too cluttered to come together.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    As with most Ferrell projects, there's nothing profound going on in The Other Guys. It's just a bit of good, stupid fun, had at the expense of an uber-formulaic genre that has long been ripe for the spoofing. But it also works.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Wahlberg is surprisingly committed to the ridiculousness.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • James White

    Skewers the action genre while also finding room for sheer madness. We've still yet to see the equal of Ron Burgundy, but this latest offering is a wonky yet worthy addition to the McKay/Ferrell pantheon.

    Empire Full Review
  • David Fear

    The film, meanwhile, gives Wahlberg and Ferrell beautiful opportunities to turn their anger-mismanagement-meets-milquetoast act into an absurdist version of Abbott and Costello.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    It's dumb and consistently funny.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Starts out as a hilarious take on cop-movie cliches, then turns into Will Ferrell's own "Capitalism: A Love Story."

    New York Post Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    There's a fine line between stupid comedy that's actually pretty smart and stupid comedy that's just dumb, and The Other Guys crosses the line - into realms of unredeeming dunderheadedness - more often than it should.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    A typical vehicle for Ferrell's atypical humor.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Have you ever seen a movie you half-liked a lot?

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Opens strongly and front-loads its best gags into the first third of the film. After that, the jokes begin to repeat themselves, and the plot becomes mired in unintelligible details of the white-collar crime.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Nick Pinkerton

    Following the clues, The Other Guys turns more hectic than antic, and somebody didn't pack enough comedy for this long trip.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Raises expectations that it has no real inclination to fulfill. The movie's best bits would stand alone nicely on YouTube, or on, the comic video boutique of which Mr. McKay is an owner and where he sometimes dabbles in short-form hilarity.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Josh Levin

    The Other Guys actually suffers by comparison to its own madcap opening sequence.

    Slate Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    The laughs ultimately take a backseat to a convoluted white-collar crime story.
